So much energy news concerns natural gas of late, and with Navios we are looking at a shipping firm that specializes in liquid natural gas (LNG.). Despite all the discussion about bringing back the coal industry and saving it from some sort of Obama-induced regulatory purgatory, the real impact on coal has come from cheaper, cleaner, natural gas. Despite the real negative impacts of fracking, the fact is the huge boost in gas production thanks to the controversial technology has paid real dividends for those nations lucky enough to possess it and develop it successfully.
These shipper plays can be difficult, however, as supply fluctuations, economic disruptions, and other unforeseen circumstances can wreak havoc in the markets and move stock prices in a contradictory manner. However, shipping can always provide insights to the overall health of the world economy and often serves-for many longtime investors–as a leading indicator.
